- I decorated my box by using the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the Blossom punch.
- I used the Bird punch for the leaves and adhered them to the flower using dimensionals.
- You could make a flower and attach with a brad (Tutorial for making handmade flowers is here.)
I shared this project as part of the ESAD Blog Hop on the weekend which celebrated the launch of the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.
Now, I must say this is not my original idea. I don’t recall where I got it from, so if it’s your idea, please contact me so I can give you credit.
The Scallop Envelope die is quite versatile and can be used for many different projects. This is just one of them. I often tell my customers don’t buy a product unless you can think of many different ways of using it. (I’m probably doing myself out of business J) Now this little box can hold 2 packs of post-it notes, 4 love note cards or a myriad of other items. The main box dimensions are approx. 8.2cm (l) x 5.7cm x 2.7cm (d). I have listed below the supplies I used for this project.
Stamps – Mixed Bunch
Card – Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze and Whisper White
Designer Series Paper – Twitterpated
Ink – Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight
Big Shot – Scallop Envelope Die
Punch – Blossom
Ribbon – Baja Breeze Pleated Satin
1. Cut out 4 scallop envelopes from cardstock or DSP. (I used 1 12” x 12” sheet of DSP).
2. Cut off bottom flap from each envelope, leaving approximately 1.2cm (see diagram below).
3. Now use 2 scallop envelopes to form a box. You need to put sticky strip on each flap on the right side of one scallop envelope as shown below.
4. Remove the sticky strip from the bottom panel and place the bottom of the other scallop envelope on top of the stick strip thus adhering the 2 pieces together. See below.
With sticky strip removed
With 2 scallop envelopes joined together
5. Now remove the sticky strip from each of the side panels and adhere the sides together, thus forming 1 box from the 2 scallop envelopes.
6. Now you have 1 box completed, make the second box in the same way.
7. Place sticky strip along the bottom of 1 box, again just below the fold for the top flap and again just under the scallop edging.
8. Remove the tape on the sticky strip and join the 2 boxes together.
9.Decorate box. I wrapped the new satin pleated ribbon around my sample.
Fill with post-it notes or cards or whatever. This would make an ideal hostess gift, teacher gift or really a gift for many occasions.
